History and Analysis

The Real Estate Record and Guide in 1888 describes these properties as “Five, Three-story frame (brick-filled) dwellings, 20×58, tin roofs, cost $4,000.”[1] Because there are actually six houses that are all similar in design and detailing, it is assumed that I.D. Reynolds designed the entire row of six, and they were all built around the same time. The two houses on the far south end (lots 40&41, 1118&1120 Bushwick Avenue) are slightly different in styling, having different cornices, lintels, and door casings, and were most likely designed and built separately.
